Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Hannibal, Toni Storm, Asuka & More
December 23, 2021
Are you ready for a Ho Ho Ho edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A? Merry Christmas friends. Let’s do this.
Have you seen Hannibal’s video calling out Maryse? Thoughts?
I’ve seen it and to be honest, it made me feel like I needed a shower afterward. Hannibal is a total sleaze and piece of crap. He gets mad at Miz and goes after Maryse instead of Miz, just like the crying, whiney, idiot, moronic child ass-clown that he is. Very few things are off-limits in my mind, but going after Maryse because she was involved with Renee Dupree in the past, as a means to slam Miz, that’s just middle-school childish nonsense. But then again, Hannibal has the behavior and intellect of a self-righteous, spoiled, 4-year old brat so it’s not a surprise. He’s a big pimple on the ass of pro wrestling and needs to be just removed and sent home to Canada to sit in his basement and play with his chew toys. He’s a lowlife sleaze and a piece of garbage.
Should AEW do a brand split with the TNT brand and the TBS brand?
Nope. WWE already has that going on with RAW and Smackdown and while it has positive aspects to it, there are many negatives as well. AEW needs to do their own thing and find their own way instead of trying to copy WWE’s style.
Are there too many wrestlers in AEW right now?
The roster is very deep to be sure and it’s easy to be lost in the shuffle, but too many people on the roster? It’s a good problem to have and while it means the talent isn’t all going to be used every show, it also means that there will always be plenty of people to fill out the events. Right now, WWE is having an issue with COVID and many of their talents have tested positive. They also have shows scheduled and may have to pull up NXT talents to be able to run the shows. AEW doesn’t have to worry about that.
Did Jeff Hardy fake his issues to get released from WWE?
It’s an interesting theory and who knows for sure. Only Jeff and maybe Matt. Jeff was under a WWE contract and wasn’t really being used well and didn’t seem to be happy. Now, he’s been released and after his 90-day no-compete period expires, he can do whatever he wants and go wherever he wants. Maybe one day, he’ll come clean and tell us what’s up, but that’s probably quite a ways down the road.
What are your thoughts on Toni Storm?
She’s a good wrestler with a good look that has just been promoted to the main roster and I feel for her because she’s getting a little push right now, but six months from now, she’s going to be just another face in the crowd and lost in the WWE shuffle while wishing she was back in NXT. Toni is good, but I don’t expect that she’ll make too much of an impact in WWE.
Where is Asuka?
She’s still with the company and I haven’t seen any reports of her being injured so I’m assuming that she’s taking some well-deserved time off, resting up, and getting ready to come back at the Royal Rumble. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
If Tony Khan was to appoint a General Manager for AEW, who would you want it to be?
If he wants to go outside the company, I’d say Eric Bischoff or Jim Cornette, but if he prefers to stick to maybe one of the folks already employed by AEW, I would suggest maybe Dean Malenko, who currently works as an agent for AEW or maybe Jerry Lynn. Both would be excellent choices.
Who do you want to see as the next AEW TNT Champ? I want PAC to win it!
I’d like to see Sammy keep it for a long time, but I don’t think that’s in the plans. (Spoiler Alert: Watch Rampage on Friday Night). So for a future TNT Champion, I’d like to see John Silver get a run at some point. I think Will Hobbes would be great. And what the hell. The Master of the Tornado DDT, Fuego Del Sol.
Bruiser Brody versus Arn Anderson. Who wins?
As much as I love and respect Double-A, he’d better have his Glock with him or otherwise, this one is all Brody.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. I hope you have a great Christmas holiday. Stay good and safe and I’ll see you on the other side. Merry Christmas Adam.
